Our brewers have poured their hearts and roasted malted into this rich, slightly sweet stout. Luscious notes of coffee and chocolate accent the smooth, creamy, mouth feel. We will not apologize for any amorous affairs resulting from the consumption of this beverage.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: A dark brown pour with a mahogony tent when put up to the light, and a one finger tan head

Smell: A lot of musty dark fruit and very subtle roasted malt, the slightest hint of chocolate if you search for it

Taste: Same as the nose, but somehow even worse; stale dark fruits and stale light roasted malt

Mouthfeel; Light body, and way too light and drinkable for a stout. Slight bitter finish

Overall: This was worse than i imagined. It reminds me of Guinness Extra, which is far from a compliment. Everything about it screams weak, musty, and watery. A six pack runs $10 around me. A bomber is the same price. Thats a freakin joke! Im surprised by some of the high ratings. Glad i only got a single. Everything iv had from this brewery is average at best. Pass this one up in all seriousness.

I've had other chocolate and coffee stouts and they always taste horrible - this one is the best. Smells like nothing but coffee slight chocolate.

It was slightly bitter with a hint of coffee flavor. My only complaint is the bar I was in served it slightly warm (which isn't the beers fault).

The love stout had a very nice pour black to the color and and a tan head to it. The aroma was of coffee and sweet chocolate. I liked the flavor too, it was a bit smoky and roasted coffee and a sweet chocolate creamy finish. I find this to be a very decent stout and I would definitely recommend trying it.

A - Very nice deep darkness for such a light ABV stout. Head is equally tan a 1/2 inch that fades to a lace ring very sticky lace is nice.
S - Good roast with a touch of chocolate sweetness and a bit of anise licorice. Smells pretty good.
T - Pretty smooth the milk stout qualities mend well with the roasty coffee and the licorice and hops take a backseat. Very good isn't too sweet to boot!
M - nice medium Body brew with a sort of creamy finish.

Overall I should have picked up a sixer of this over hop juju it's a very sessionable smooth semi sweet stout.
